Risk-benefit analysis of navigation techniques for vertebral transpedicular instrumentation: a prospective study.


BACKGROUND CONTEXT Pedicle screws in spinal surgery have allowed greater biomechanical stability and higher fusion rates. However, malposition is very common and may cause neurologic, vascular, and visceral injuries and compromise mechanical stability. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the malposition rate between intraoperative computed… (More)
